"Calm, relaxing and comfortable"
We have just returned from a thoroughly enjoyable week at Casa Rey. Debbie and Alick were fantastic hosts and so welcoming. Our trip to the area was planned to look for a property to rent for the winter months and Debbie and Alick generously provided us with really useful information. Casa Rey is a real home from home, well planned, clean and comfortable and in such a beautiful location. Within easy reach of Competa and the coast. Highly recommended.

"A little disappointed"
The picture of the studio looked lovely but sadly we were a little disappointed because we thought it needed a little bit of TLC but for the money it is a reasonable option .It does have lovely views … More
Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at Casa Rey. We are sorry that the apartment did not meet your expectations. As you will see from previous reviews this is the first time in 9 years that we have had anything other than a positive review and many of our guests have returned several times. It is decorated inside and out at the beginning of each season and is equipped with everything we feel is needed for an enjoyable holiday. You do not mention the areas that you feel are in need of TLC and we would very much appreciate it if you could mail us to let us know so we can address them for future customers. We do feel, however, that Casa Rey offers excellent value for money.

"Comfortable accommodations, tremendous views, marvellous sleep."
My spouse and I went to Casa Rey for a week's stay without a car, which worked very well for us. We took the bus there and back to Malaga. The location of the apt., approximately 2Km from the centre of Competa, was great for the three beautiful walks we did right from the front door. Our hosts, Alick and Debbie provided detailed written instructions for these walks which was a bonus. We were also blessed with warm, sunny days.
The apartment was very cosy and well laid out with a full kitchen (very sharp knife included) for preparing meals, which we did after buying groceries in town. The only missing ingredient was a freezer, so no ice cream. But that was ok as ice cream was available in town. The bed was very comfortable with a wonderful warm duvet and wi-fi worked perfectly throughout our stay.
Lack of a car did not diminish our enjoyment of the week of clear, fresh air, friendly and helpful hosts and lots of exercise. We hope to return for another stay at Casa Rey in the near future.

"Fabulous apartment, location and people"
At the risk of sounding like all the other reviewers - Wow.
We spent a wonderful 10 days at Casa Rey and would totally recommend it to anyone, just be mindful of the location if you have mobility issues or don't have a head for heights!
Alick and Debbie and their two lovely dogs Maddie and Timmie have created a very special place. The apartment has everything you need and is so cosy and relaxing. Outside the pool area is exactly how you see it in the photos - there aren't too many places where you can sit next to a pool, with views straight down a valley to the sea....and where there are, you pay an arm and a leg for the privilege!
The location is spot on. You are 5 mins by car or 25/30 mins walk into Competa where you will find a range of excellent restaurants, shops, cafe's, bars, supermarkets, fishmongers and bakers and, of course, Alick and Debbie's shop. It is about 30 mins down to the coast and a selection of towns and beaches - try the sardines on the beach at the east end of Torre del Mar beach cooked over a bbq set in a boat! Just up and over the mountain above Casa Rey is the Sierra de Almijara mountain range, slightly off the beaten track but worth the drive - stunning views from the Puerto del Gollado at around 3,000 feet but only a 15-20 min drive or 3-4 hour walk.
We ate at El Pilon twice, excellent food and drink, friendly staff - special mention to Tom - good views (amazing sunset on our second night) and delicious honey rum! Also ate at La Taberna de Oscar - good food and lovely location just off main square.
In summary - well enough to say we are going back next June and the next year etc etc. Do yourself a favour and just do it!

"Stunning views & welcoming owners"
Our visit to Casa Rey was nothing short of excellent. Its in a fantastic location with beautiful views all round. The owners Debbie & Alick are extremely friendly and helpful and are always on hand to offer any local knowledge of the area if need be. The apartment itself is very clean and included everything that we required for our ten day visit with a laundry service available too. The property matched the listing as described on owners direct. WiFi access was available in the apartment too.The best part of the holiday was having the swimming pool on our doorstep and was always for our use from the hours of 9am to 7pm. A car was definitely essential for our stay and is highly recommended for anyone wishing to stay. The directions supplied to us from Debbie & Alick to get from the airport to the apartment were great and took roughly an hour. The village of Competa is lovely and has all the amenities from Restaurants to a supermarket.

We found the property fairly easily thanks to good directions provided by Alick and Debbie. Friendly welcome, provisions we had requested were waiting for us, and we were also welcomed by the two dogs… More

"Lovely property with splendid views down to the Mediterranean"
We stayed at Casa Rey in April 2012 for a week, arriving late on Easter Sunday. The owners, Debbie and Alick were very speedy and efficient in their email correspondence, and we had our booking confirmed the same day we sent off our initial enquiry email.
We asked if Alick and Debbie could organise us a few provisions for our arrival due to our late arrival time, and they were more than happy to do this for us. Alick and Debbie run the local newsagents in Competa and have a good knowledge of what there is do and see in the area. On our last night they kindly made us a reservation and El Pilon in Competa for a superb meal and we enjoyed an evening of good food and Flamenco guitar music.
Casa Rey is clean, light, and airy and has everything you could need. The directions provided were excellent and proved easy to follow. There is a very comprehensive and well written information pack with maps of local towns and walks from Casa Rey. We spent a lot of time sitting out enjoying the splendid views down the valley to the sea, watching the birds from the terrace. Beeaters, Serin, Sardinian Warbler, Blue rock thrush, and Booted and Short-toed eagles were just a few of the highlights easily seen from Casa Rey that are typical of the area.
It was also nice to make friends with Timi and Maddie the spaniels, who were as welcoming and friendly as Alick and Debbie.
Casa Rey was just what we needed to get away from the Scottish weather for a relaxing break in a fantastic property, set in stunning scenery.
